What can I do with about 8 acres of "bottom land"? It borders a creek that floods mostly in the spring. It is common to have anywhere from 4-10 feet of water about 5 times a year. It drains in a day or two. I was thinking about fencing it and putting calves or sheep on it but I am not sure. I can't think of any crop I can put on it that would stand that much water at a time. If I put any livestock on it, I have to be ready to move them to higher ground quickly if need be. I thought about using it for grazing only during the drier times of year. With that much water, I 'm not even sure if a fence will stay put. Help me out here and tell me what would you do with it?
